Lorettas great TV entrance!
5 January 2019 | by rodkb-62759See all my reviews

Lorreta Young shows her versatility as an actress in this TV debut. Delightful crass character and skilfully provocative - lots of fun! The canned audience is annoying however and it seems that she decided against using it in almost all future vignettes! This was an historic "Trial Run"!
